Makeover Monday {Saved by Suzy}

Hello Monday and good bye weekend. It totally flew by because I was so busy, but I had a blast! I took some great photos of the shower we threw for my future sister-in-law and will share them with you on Wednesday, so be sure and check back. 

Now, it's Suzy's turn.....

Hello!  My name is Suzy and my blog is called Saved by Suzy.  I'm so happy that Megan invited me to be a part of Makeover Mondays!  My blog is all about makeovers...furniture makeovers.  I find old furniture at thrift stores, garage sales, and even on the curb.  I "save" this furniture by giving it a makeover and a new lease on life.
Today I'm going to share some of my favorite furniture makeovers with you.  Everybody loves a good before and after, right?
I got this old buffet at a garage sale for $10.  The top was a mess...bubbling and peeling off.
This old girl's makeover included gluing a new top on, a few coats of paint, and some pretty gold greek key detailing.  Here's her big reveal:
Check out this old desk.   Not too pretty...
Some blue paint and polished hardware and she's good as new:
One of my absolute favorite things to makeover are chairs.  Fabric is an obsession of mine and I love searching for just the right fabric to give new life to an old chair. 
I've had these chairs around my house and in the garage for over 15-years.  They are antiques from the hotel in Aspen where my husband and I got married.  Pardon the poor before shot...I took it before I started blogging.
And after:
 Does that desk look familiar?  This is my daughter C's room:
Here's a little sneak peak of something I just completed this weekend.  I will post a tutorial on my blog tomorrow if you want to know more.  This ugly old dresser was lopsided and unloved.
 So much better:
Thanks again Megan!  It's been a blast sharing some of my favorite things with your readers. 
Stop by Saved by Suzy if you are interested in more furniture makeovers, tutorials and all things decor.  I also host a linky party, Suzy's House Party, on Thursdays and love to discover and feature new blogs.  I would love to have you join the party!
